Rust Problems

Do you have rust problems around your house? If you do, I have some easy ways to get rid of it, and some great ways to keep it from coming back! The bathroom is an easy place to get rust. It’s almost always moist and doesn’t usually get enough circulation.

  1. If a shaving cream can is leaving a ring of rust in your bathroom, just scrub the rust with a scouring pad. Dry the can and paint the bottom with some clear nail polish. This will seal it and prevent the rust from returning.
  2. How about screws on the back of your toilet? To loosen rusted screws or bolts use some penetrating oil, or a cloth soaked in any carbonated beverage. Now you should let it sit for about an hour or so.
  3. To clean away stubborn rust try a paste of salt and lemon juice.
  4. For rust on scissors, tweezers, and other metal implements in the bathroom, just soak them in water with a little ammonia for about 10 minutes. Then scrub them with a steel wool soap pad. Rinse and air dry.
